For Mac users who have trouble with our regular homepage:

**Greetings**

We don't 'have a new issue yet, but it is on the way. However, we are
still alive and have been spending some time updating old issues and
creating a TOWFI t-shirt store. Buy your "Stamp Out Netymology"
t-shirt today! You'll find the link below.

**This Week**

As mentioned, the new issue is not ready yet, but we have gone back and
done a bit of updating to some etymologies that weren't quite on the
mark. Below is a list of those we have changed. We inserted "UPDATED
JANUARY 2006" at the beginning of each updated entry. Some of the
changes were fairly substantial; others were just tweaks.

NOTE: The links in this newsletter should be good for some time.
